On Friday evening many parents and friends of the school came together to bid for the truly impressive art created by their children. The auctioneer, Thomas Keller, was excellent. There was a lot of laughter and socializing and everybody had loads of fun for a good cause. An extra big Thank You goes out to the parent committee who put immense effort into the preparation of this event!
The first Music Evening of this year, last night was a great success. Over 20 Students showed remarkable talent, as they performed their individual musical pieces. Every Grade was represented. From the small Grade 1’s, all the way to our eldest students in Grade 7. There was great variety, as the DSD now boasts a whole variety of instruments. From Recorder, Piano and Clarinet, all the way to the Trumpet, Oboe, Guitar and even Vocals- our students made us proud. We are already looking forward to the second Music Evening, which will be held at the end of the 3rd Term.
It was a great day for the Kindergarten to take a trip down to the Fire Department in Westville. After the children had some yummy food, they got to see the Fire Engine, how the Fire Men slide down the pole and learned many more fascinating facts about the life of a Fireman. The best part was when the children got to play in the foam from the firehose.
In an effort to make every drop of water count – we asked all the school kids to bring at least 2 liters of Grey Water to school every Friday, and each class gets allocated a part of the schools garden, to water. We started this project last Friday, 6 May. Our plan is to carry on with this project for the whole term, and graph the results each week to show how much of a difference we are making. The children were very excited, and enjoyed watering the plants for the first time today. We already collected a total of 369 litres on our first day!
